CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) –
Chattanooga State Community College broke ground today on a building that has been two years in the making.
School officials thanked many of the politicians in attendance for helping make the new Tennessee College of Applied Technology facility become a reality.
The building costs almost 22 million dollars, and will be the workforce training facility that helps fill some of the worker shortage gaps.
Sen. Bo Watson tells us “Our T-CAT centers are really becoming places where communities are getting the types of employees that they need, employers are asking for this. This really reflects a bigger education strategy that this state’s embarked on.”
According to school regent Weston Wamp, the new facility is the only educational capital project the state legislature approved in May of 2020.
